Iran bazaar beset by cheap Chinese goods

Shopkeepers worry about influx of cheaper lower-quality imports from Tehran's big Asian ally.

    Western powers have stepped up its sanctions over Iran's nuclear programme.

    As a result, Tehran's been forced to expand trade agreements with traditional backers, such as export powerhouse China.

    The massive influx of inexpensive Chinese imports, however, is causing problems for local economies.
